Ellie a four year old spayed female with special needs. She is in excellent physical health but mentally she has been abused and needs someone with kindness and patience. Sweet and submissive this tiny girl appreciates a gentle hand and would do best with a quiet home with another whippet or more for comfort. She gets along with other dogs, likes to ride in the car, is easy to walk on a lead or carry, and prefers to hang out in her crate. She enjoys dinner time and is working on taking treats from hand. A very quiet, pleasant girl to live with but is fearful of too much interaction with humans. It will take time to get this girl to trust but for those who like cat-like dog she is a good match. Someone who works from home or retired would be ideal and who respects Ellies limitations on stimulation.
